Orchid Garden & Orchard Road @ Singapore

My day 4 of Singapore trip is the most colourful of all. A visit to Botanical garden & National Orchid Garden is worth the nature experience. The garden is well maintained, clean & almost perfect. Botanical garden entrance is free while the orchid garden needs SGD5. Getting here is a bit hassle. You will need to take MRT to Orchard Road then take a taxi from there. From Orchard it cost around SGD5 by cab. With the new MRT extension which is currently under construction, visitors & tourists will be more convenient of coming to this place.

Orchard Road - Shopping Day

After done our tour in the gardens, we went back to Orchard for shopping. I didn't buy anything as the price here is not cheap. The only thing I like here is great choices and they have more brands compared to in Malaysia. One more thing that I like is the food here. Quite lucky to be able to choose a restaurant which serve good braised duck. More story below...


Ion Orchard - colourful figures.

Ngee Ann City. It also house the largest Kinokuniya book store.

Lucky plaza. Place to get cheaper stuff & electronics especially camera. Do know your stuff before you go in though. This mall mostly visited by Filipino who works in Singapore.

Another sex toy shop here. House of condom.



Latest addition of shopping mall in Orchard road - Paragon.
